I may have to go check that out once I find out how far that is from Charlotte. Well, never mind I just looked it up. Too far to go for fish and plants.

Yeh great place but now I have 14 pots of plants not sure what some are but they sure are yukkey unpotted some already and put some of them to soak in my concrete mixing and will wash all the dirt off plus now I have a preformed 200 or 300 gallon pond to clean out and the fish rescue went good and there were 10 fish and not sure how they survived real estate lady asked us to take pond out and take rocks away and fill it in what a job tired and sore now and dirty .She told me the house was foreclosed on 2 years ago .She just got the listing 2 months ago and didn't know what to do .Lucky I have a large tank I bought from tractor supply that was damaged .The top was cracked and now a good home for the time being .Have extra oxygen going in it but they lived through hell so a couple of days more they should be ok .Got 1 pump in there to keep water moving .Will put them in the pond at the other house for now I guess
